There is a book, _Ceramics and Print_, by Paul Scott that deals with many aspects
of getting images onto clay, including toner transfers.
I've used my laser printer to transfer images onto both leather-hard slabs and
bisque-fired tiles with very good success. I've used both a mild solvent like Oil
of Wintergreen and also just a lot of burnishing (on wet, leather-hard clay). The
images turn a reddish-brown. I've used both HP Laserjet and Apple Laserwriter
prints with equal success. I've told others about this technique and they haven't
had the same results, so it's not a fool-proof method.
the book details follow:
